7/15/17 – At 1958hrs Station 2 was requested for the dive team by FD 21 to respond for a water rescue in Pine Grove township. Squad 63-64, Utility 63-71 and boats went responding with the report of 4 people stranded on or along the swatara creek, in a heavily wooded area, as a result of a rafting trip in which the river was moving faster then expected due to the recent rains. The team arrived to the starting point on Geary Wolfe road and deployed 2 inflatable boats and 6 rescue personnel to maneuver with the swift current downstream, through large areas of natural debris, searching for the individuals. The boats eventually made contact and loaded up the 4 individuals to extricate them further downstream in the area of Swopes Valley road, to awaiting EMS personnel to be evaluated for any possible injuries.
